I took this shot last month in Paris when went there for my wedding. Paris is a very romantic city and there are lots of great bridges. This one was my favorite since I saw it in the web before I go there.
I went the place two hours before the sunset on the shooting day to find a nice spot. After taking a few test shots, I waited for the right time. I start to take series of exposures just after the bridge lamps lit. A few minutes later, I took I want when the blue hour started.
Post-process was not easy. I blended more than 10 exposures by using luminosity masks and luminosity selections for dynamic range, for some light effects and for focus stacking.
I did not have my trusted filters with me so I opted for a 30 second exposure to smooth the water as much as possible. Although I really like the effect on the water, next time I’ll remember the filters and see how this image can be improved.
This is another of my Eiffel Tower images that cannot be purchased without a license for the illuminated tower. If you are interested in licensing this image please contact me and I’ll explain more.
